Dear Launch Week of My New Novel The Younger Man,
Oh MAN (younger, I suspect) I can’t wait to get you in stores and on shelves and in hands and in front of eyes. Can you believe you’re out next Wednesday?
Well you are, dingus, so pay attention.
Now, to celebrate this, I want to do something loving and literary for my readers. I want to write them their own personal chick-lit piece.
Twit Chick Lit!
How it will work is this:
On Monday morning, I will tweet something really cool and admirable and totally not self-promoting about The Younger Man. Like: The only book anyone should read this year is The Younger Man by Zoe Foster.
Excitable followers will then RT this self-deprecating and subtle tweet, and when I see them do that, I will select some and write them their own, unique chick lit.
@katie99 met Tom in the park. His fiancee had left him; her marriage had fallen apart. They fell in love doing laundry and bought a cat.
@lizgloss fell for a gent with no scruples. He was exciting and they got tats. They didn’t last but the sex was outstanding.
@lilshopper cheated with a man named Troy. They travelled they world. She felt guilty and returned to her ex. He forgave her; they pashed.
IMAGINE! Their name carefully injected into a thrilling romantic narrative that is brimming with lust and drama and then suspesefully concluded, and all in under 140 characters.
As if that wasn’t enough to lift your luggage, each day I will randomly select one of the gorgeous RT-ers selected for a Twit Chick-Lit and send them a signed copy of what else but… Twilight!
No, no, sorry - it’s The Younger Man. The book they’ll win is definitely The Younger Man.
I think you’ll agree this is the best fun a girl can have on Twitter where new chick lit novels are concerned, and I sincerely hope many fun squids will play along.
From your friend,
